Hello Martin My wife and I enjoyed my interpretation of this recipe. In fact the wife will make it for guests in 2 weeks. I basically followed everything and substituted some marmalade jam for the orange peel. Also I did make the almond flourless cake and that turned out well and it was gone in 4 da...

Thanks Martin

I would make this for a desert after dinner (as I don't have a sweet for breakfast, but I am open to try it with the capuccino). I thought you might recommend a Port, Sauterne or Brandy.

Looks like this is worth making and real easy/simple, then maybe wash it down it a nice dry White or BORDEAUX??? or any wine that you like.

Looks Good, I am just making some marmalade jam and may use it as a marinade like in your recipe by diluting it some and adding the soy and honey (should work).

Late to the party with the 2000 Poujeaux, but I did buy 6 bottles of the 2009 Poujeaux. Anymore recommendations on great QPR Bordeauxs

Thanks good to know, because if that is the practice in the wine world, then what the consumer will ultimately get is not the 93 point wine awarded by the taster, but something a tad inferior in my opinion.

Damn my wife is a really big fan of Julia Childs and man can she cook up a great bœuf bourguignon. I believe she use a Cotie Rotie in this dish and then washed down with a nice Bordeaux.

Hi Tony Even one or two tank, the wine will be different (to what degree/limits are the tolerances OK). If you are talking multiple barrels the difference between barrels would be interesting to know and if there is quality issues maybe the wine makers can try to bring the wine into a range. Anyway ...

Great to hear about the expectations for 2010. I will not be going to Bordeaux (never have), but I will certainly buy the 2010 Vintage from what I have read to date. I don't expect prices to drop below 2009 given the buoyancy of the World Economy (too much money floating around; can you say inflatio...

Bottle variation is bound to occur, because you will have variations in all the different vats/tanks from which the wine have been bottled. I just wonder how much quality control is being done in wineries. Not having been to a winery to see how wine is made I just know from working with large sample...

Being an avid reader here is my contribution to the Food and Wine Forum I like to cook and for dinner tonight, I am cooking Oso Buco with a jar of my homemade Tomato Sauce and a jar of NorthWest Chanterelle Mushrooms which I pick from my secret location here in Oregon during late September-October. ...
